The biggest reason many of us require to edit themes is to add JavaScript libraries, CSS codes or analytics tracking code. However, the problem with editing themes is that you will lose all your customization when you decide to change your theme or redesign it.

Last week I wrote up a post to review the Real-Time Find and Replace Plugin and the comments on that story about other methods to make site wide changes permanent sent me in search of another way to search and replace information in my SQL database. Now I consider myself pretty decent at geeky things but directly editing and messing with my site’s SQL database does not top my list of things to do.  Neither does manually going through nearly 1,000 postings to make changes. What I found was a terrific plug-in that lets me perform a few different functions to make corrections or change info throughout my site. Caveat: Before I get started – this plugin does make changes to your database. Play it safe and back up your info to protect your original data. With that said let me now introduce you to the Search Regex Plugin written […]

According to the WordPress.com support page on short codes they are defined as follows: A shortcode is a WordPress-specific code that lets you do nifty things with very little effort. Shortcodes can embed files or create objects that would normally require lots of complicated, ugly code in just one line. Shortcode = shortcut. Many WordPress plug-ins make use of short codes to easily make a call to a plug-ins functionality.  This can make maintaining your WordPress based site very easy but what happens if you decide to shift from one plug-in to another and that specific short code is not used in the new plug-in? Let me give you an example.  I used to use the WordPress Adsense Manager Plug-in on WindowsObserver.com to place my Google Adsense ads.  It allowed me to build the ad and then use a short code to place it on a page or in a […]

Stats – Stats – Stats.  They can drive everything for your WordPress site.  They can help you understand how visitors move around your site; how they got there in the first place; what are the most popular posts they are visiting; what browser and OS they are using. The list can go on and on. I have spent a lot of time over the last few months looking for just the right plug-in to track stats on my WindowsObserver.com website and I think I may have hit the mother lode with my most recent discovery. CyStats is written by Michael Weingaertner and has been downloaded from the WordPress.org Extend directory 32,435 times over the 23 months it has been available there. The last update was last October so it would be nice to see an update however, it works just fine with the current release of WordPress (2.8.4). According to […]

How to write a good plugin review

5
responses

When we launched our Reader Review series, I’m sure we created a few doubts in your mind about: How do I write a review? Will my review be accepted? What if my review gets trashed by readers? Is it really worth the effort? And so on… We published a list of reviews from our readers, so that is a good starting point. I’ll guide you through a few tips on writing a good review. Step 1 – Select the Plugin The first step to starting the review, is well finalizing on which plugin you want to review, then downloading and installing the same on your blog. This could either be a dummy blog dedicated for this purpose or maybe your production blog itself. Do you really need to install it? Well, the answer is obvious. Yes, you need to. Because without getting a hands on experience, you will never be […]

Weekly Plugin Review, WordPress Plugins

One thing I’ve loved about WordPress 2.7.x is the ability to install plugins directly from the WordPress Plugin Repository. You don’t need to visit the individual site and instead just search for the plugin you want and then download, install and activate it. However, even now, you need to go to your WP-Admin to install your plugins. Improved Plugin Installation helps overcome this problem. Description: This plugin is an improvement to the current WP 2.7 plugin installation methods. It allows you to install one or more plugins simply by typing the names of the plugins or the download URLs in a textarea. This means you can install all your favorite wordpress plugins in one go! Furthermore, a bookmarklet is included which lets you install plugins directly from an external site. Review: Firstly, I love the plugin page. I’ve always encouraged authors to write detailed plugin pages on their blogs as […]

Weekly Plugin Review, WordPress Plugins

Last week we reviewed Referrer Detector. This week we review a similar plugin called WP Greet Box. What is WP Greet Box? This plugin lets you show a different greeting message to your new visitors depending on their referrer URL. For example, when a Digg user clicks through from Digg, they will see a message reminding them to digg your post if they like it. Another example, when a visitor clicks through from Twitter, they will see a message suggesting them to twit the post and follow you on Twitter. You can also set a default greeting message for new visitors (not matching any referrer URLs) suggesting them to subscribe to your RSS feed. Having these targeted suggestions will help your blog increase exposure, loyal readership, and reader interaction. Screenshot Features Show a different greeting message to your visitor depending on the referrer URL. You can add/edit/delete/disable these greeting messages […]

Weekly Plugin Review, WordPress Plugins

The second plugin in our weekly plugin review series is not a one that helps you win over a few visitors who arrive from search engines and other sites. What is Referrer Detector? Referrer Detector is a WordPress Plugin that displays a greeting message to visitors that come from different urls (known as referrers). For example, you may want to welcome Diggers with a message that reminds them to digg your story, or you may want to ask Del.icio.us users to bookmark your post, and so on. Features A pure AJAXed admin interface with elements tidily divided into tabs. Entries can be added/modified/(de)activated/deleted without the need to reload the entire page, or even with just one click. The greet box position can be set to before or after the post. A [custom tag] can also be used in case you don’t want to show greetings on every post. Users can […]
